In a poll made by MMI for Dagbladet shows that 93 per cent of those asked said King Harald V is doing a good job for Norway, while only 1 percent think otherwise.

Queen Sonja got an 81 percent approval rating, while Crown Prince Haakon received an 89 percent approval and 75 percent believe Crown Princess Mette-Marit is doing a good job.

“This clearly shows that the royal family is rock solid in the Norwegian people,” the long-standing court reporter Kjell Arne Totland said.

The one member of the Norwegian royal family who got low approval rating was Princess Martha Louise. Only 25 percent think she does a good job for the country while 27 percent think she does not. Another 43 percent believe she does an OK job.

At the same time, only 15 percent believe her when she says she communicates to angels and the deceased.

Martha Louise’s husband, Ari Behn, who is not an official member of the royal family, received a low approval rating. 57 percent of Norwegians see him as doing a poor job for the country.
